The Jalapeno is the most common of the hot chili peppers, and we sell these by the count instead of by the pound, so each order nets you three peppers. Valley Flora Farm in Langlois and Lehne Farms LLC in Roseburg both grow these using organic practices; the farm offering them on any given week is noted above.
Compared to other chilies, the Jalapeño Pepper varies from mild to hot depending on cultivation and preparation, and can have from a few thousand to over 10,000 Scoville heat units. (For comparison, the Habanero is over 100,000 Scoville heat units). The number of scars on the pepper (which appear as small brown lines, called ‘corking’) has a positive correlation with how hot these peppers are: growing conditions which increase the level of heat also cause the pepper to form scars. In other words, the more scars, the hotter the pepper!
